I can re-scan keepers at hi res here at home. There is a certain magic to b&w film and contact sheets.
    I heard great things about the Contax T3 (also expensive). I couldn't agree with you more about the "magic" when shooting with film.

    Im saying this in case anyone is considering a purchase. - I did not get good value from my contax T2, nice camera but control button failed then lens stopped popping out - so much for a titanium case. Got more miles from my olympus trip which it was a snazzy upgrade for.

    As a hitorical aside - I went 'as a guest' to a chums wedding in south africa in maybe 1998 - took only the T2, as I was a guest and travelling light. On arrival I was informed that I was the actually official photographer - did most of it with the T2 (and a borrowed Pentax for telephoto) and the pics are very very sharp - if digital is sharper it is not needed.

    light leak could be from the shutter getting stuck or being slow.

    There's actually two issues in this example. One is light leaks (seals are worn and light comes through the back cover. The other, lines going across was from me not putting enough pressure to hold the film at the inital wind so there was a slack. The lab said the film came out sorta bend and "folded" hence those marks. The light leaks are the flare looking ones.
